Northern Governors Condemn Attack On EndSARS Protesters, Demands For Investigation

1 Mins read

The governors said the #EndSARS protesters had the rights of expression, expressing surprise over the attacks.

Emerging from an emergency meeting on Thursday in Kaduna State, governors of the 19 states in the North condemned the destruction of lives and property which trailed the #EndSARS protest across the country.

They called on the Federal Government to constitute a judicial commission of enquiry to probe destruction and killings during the #EndSARS protest.

The forum also urged the central government to explore the possibility of ending the Academic Staff Union of Universities strike.

The Chairman of the governors and Plateau State’s helmsman, Simon Lalong, who read the communiqué, commiserated with those that lost their lives during the protest.

The 15-point communique read in part, “The Forum regrets the diabolical influencers in form of hooliganism, ethno-religious bigots and even political marauders who are bent on pulling the nation down its knees and pushing for regime change.

“The Forum called on all Nigerians to resist these enemies of the nation by supporting Mr President, the Federal Government and democracy at large.

“Forum appeals to all citizens to restrain themselves from unwarranted disposition of sentiments, harassment and intimidation of other citizens resident in their home states. The Forum notes that all these are antics of the enemies of the country who are violently pushing for regime change outside the ballot box.”

The governors added that they had resolved to intensify their strategic engagements among different levels of stakeholders in their respective states, calling for police reforms.

“The Forum advocates for the Constitution of Judicial Commission of enquiry to investigate all levels of destruction and killings during the Endsars protest.

“Federal Government to explore the possibility of ending ASUU strike. Most of the youths are idle staying at home.”
